Bloody women!

on Thu May 17, 2018 7:09 pm
So Mrs Teeps has decided that she wants to take the BM to her Karate class on a Tuesday and Thursday. I let her take it last Thursday and she managed to open the door onto a bench, fortunately the mark polished out. Anyhow as I made her feel bad and I wanted to let her know that I wouldn't be funny about her using the car again I let her take it on Tuesday. However tonight I said no. It's less than half a mile, half that walking so she should be going on foot, the lpg won't even kick in and the engine won't even begin to get warm. It's the kind of driving I avoid if I possibly can as its not good for the engine. She's sulking now...

What would you guys do?

Just asking, I aint budging on this one.

Buy her a Smart car. Or, if funds allow a white BMW convertible with pink leather upholstery?!

She has a car, it's just mine is cooler apparently. This kind of driving is why her 1.8 Verso is getting about 27 mpg.

Not an argument I’d bother having with the Mrs but she’d probably walk it anyway

I think that's cool, she wants to drive your car. I would get in the Verso and drive it in to a river or something.

Get her a scooter which is cool for the environment, cheap as feck to run and she can use a 50 on her car licence.

what teeps didn't tell us is that he had hidden her car keys, it was pissing down with rain and it was actually a 4 mile walk and not half a mile............all because she slept with one of the blokes from Not Parkers (i'm not saying who it was, but it was me)

Nah stick to your guns teeps, if they can't drive they should stop at home or walk.

Mine hit the gate post AGAIN last week did the back door and the wheel arch this time.

Still it matches the front door she caved in last time.

T cut made it look less ouch! but its a real mess.

So far that side has had two mirrors as well.

£340 for two second hand doors this week.

There are about 3.2-billion women in the world. According to howmanyleft.co.uk there are barely 2000 BMW 330i Tourings left in the country. That's 1.6-million women for every BMW 330i Touring. Just remind her which will be the easier to replace... Wink

Sad

Maybe time to change it for an XF !!!

Still weighing up the whole convertible thing.

Pro’s ... (2)
Looks cool
The roof comes off ...

Cons (6)
No rear doors makes it a pain getting the kids in and out
Only takes four people
Back seats are very small, and putting the kids seat belts on is impossible (the seats overlap the ports)
Boot is tiny and awkward (worse with the roof down)
Can’t fit a roof box
You can feel the weight of the roof electrics over the rear wheels

In short - we have 2 short breaks coming up soon (and already done a few this year) and we end up doing all the long journeys in the Zafira, as the BM (and crucially the fact I can’t put a roof box on it) is just too small.
